DUI charge in Hoboken
I am so thankful Michael Rubas worked tirelessly to get my DUI case dismissed. He is an incredibly understanding and personable individual who helps you navigate the case without feeling overwhelmed by the legalities. Mr. Rubas went above and beyond to ensure the issue was handled correctly, which led to the court's dismissal of my case. Definitely the best attorney hands down!

amazing defense
Attorney Rubas was recommended to me by another attorney. From the initial consultation, I found him to be very professional and easy to talk to. He is also a very good listener. He always kept me informed of any developments and successfully defended me. He is as good a criminal defense lawyer as anyone could hope for.
